Imho, potential bicyclist injury/death was "created" when road sharing between bicycles and much larger vehicles was established on NYC streets. Bicycles should be removed from city streets and only be safely used for pleasure in specially designated places; this measure would avoid all (or most) of bicycle collision related tragedies, grief, and legal/financial consequences
So how do you expect me to get home every day when there's one bus running in the middle of the night and if I miss it it's either $25 for an uber or over an hour commute instead of my 18 min bike ride? I've been road cycling for six years in the city with only one incident where someone turned left sharply with no indicator, slammed on his brake while going downhill and I ended up plowing into the drivers side door and completely flipping over the hood and going to the ER right after. The majority of people driving in NYC don't pay attention for sht and especially have no interest in looking out for cyclists. I'm on both ends, cycling and driving in the city and when it comes down to safety I respect it because I don't want to injure/kill someone and have the same happen to myself. Good for those who try to ride safe and for those that blow through light blatantly and don't pay attention... well what goes around comes around unfortunately. I'm not 100% a saint when I cycle but I do it as safe as possible when it warrants.

Wear bright lights, don't text and ride, don't ride up wrong way streets (or if you do it - don't get outraged at us honking to save your live :) ) and we have a deal (and you already are not a regular NYC bike rider, but a very nice one :) )

V1Jake, I do not know how to solve your commuting issues but I want you (and all others) to get home (or other destination) safe and sound, period.

By riding bike on shared NYC roads you take chances, you know and accept it, and your experience proves how inherently risky it could be. Unfortunately, many bicyclists were less lucky than you and I want to avoid these situations. Removing bicycles from street traffic is the safest way to prevent future mishaps for everyone's benefit, imho.

I do all of the above. 800 lumen flashlights, flashing lights on both ends and an extremely reflective vest. Even got a bell so they wouldn't ticket me :)

New camera in Sunnyside, Queens. Southbound on 48th street after 48th Ave going towards the BQE overpass. Camera is TUCKED on the right side right after a tree. You will not see this thing heading southbound...

They're going up so fast, nobody can keep up.

On Edit:

Can these track multiple vehicles at once in the same enforcement zone and individualize the speeds of each vehicle? I would think not or perhaps it would be software based if so? I only saw the small radar box on the pole.

From what I read they use patch antennas so they can track vehicles in each lane and tag the one over the programmed limit.

Yes it's individual tracking. The antenna is capable of beam steering and combined with image recognition can determine the exact lane a vehicle is travelling in and track multiple targets.

They also take two pictures, half a second apart so they can use that to get your speed if needed.

My dad got a bunch of these tickets already. In one, his vehicle is almost the same speed as the vehicle in the next lane over. I thought we might have an argument as there's no way to distinguish which vehicle was "speeding". Glad I asked.

If anyone hasn't received one yet, the video quality is very good as are the still photos.

Appreciate your opinion but it’s just that, an opinion. Pedestrians die often due to vehicular accidents (largest share of traffic fatalities) in NYC, should people stop walking?

There are a*hole bikers just like there are a*hole drivers and walkers for that matter. NYC is only going to become more crowded and individual car usage within Manhattan is becoming less and less feasible. Public transportation, ride share and alternative transportation methods are the only realistic long term solution. Driving your car into Manhattan to go shopping or to work is SUCH A WASTE.

I don’t have all the answers but getting rid of bike lanes certainly isn’t one of them in MY opinion.

Bets anyone on which one happens first???

Sorry to go back off topic but as an ex daily cyclist I feel pretty passionate about the topic as well as; the fact that a detector with MRCD and WaZE negates the need for this thread all together.
